Muncy Main Street Captures the Crowds
MUNCY – A line of 125 cars were lined up along Main Street between Mechanic and East Penn Streets on Saturday for the annual Corvette and Juried Arts Show. Thousands turned out for the event that was held from ten to four. “It was such a successful event, three of our food vendors ran out twice in the early part of the afternoon and had to go and get more supplies and food,” remarked Chris Johnson one of the organizers for the event and a member of the Muncy Professional Business Association.
The organization was one of many corporate sponsors including Blaise Alexander who brought in a racing team, Muncy Bank and Trust, and Kiss FM, Sovereign Bank, Eagle Rock Winery, McCain Industrial Services, Myers-Pepper Agency LLC, and the Susquehanna Valley Corvette Club.
St. Andrews Church sold over 40 pounds of hot dogs. “We had to run out twice and get more hot dogs,” said Tom Knight from Muncy. “There are 40 hot dogs in a 5 lb. box so we sold a lot of hot dogs,” added Don Miller, Muncy. Most of the artisans and food vendors arrived at 7:30 in the morning to set up. “By noon we were really busy,” Johnson said. There were 7 food vendors and 17 juried artists. “We have had a lot of guests too this weekend and lots of people spending the night.”
Keith Berger from Liverpool won Best of Show for his orange 1950 Chevy Delivery model. He said he has owned it for 25 years and this was the first time he has ever entered the car into the Muncy show. It was one of the oldest cars there. The awards were given out around 3:30 p.m. shortly after winners for 50/50 drawings were announced. There was $316 worth of raffle winnings awarded according to the Susquehanna Valley Corvette Club. The hard work from the committees and volunteers really paid off and a record was set for the four year event.
